Have you ever seen the bullet nosed station wagon built by Teddy Z ? I know, they didn't make a wagon in '50 & '51, but Ted did. I'll dig around in my files and see if I can find a pic. Car stayed in this area (Mich) for quite a while, but I think it has moved.

I might get shot for this, but I think these bullet nose Starlight coupes look better as street rods than as stockers. Almost like they were made to have no front bumper, a nice hot rod "rake", big tires in the back, and a bright paint job [:p].

I REALLY like this one! The interior is just right for the car. The stock appearing dash would be hard to improve on. The color probably wouldn't have been my first choice, but it really works well on the car (do ya' think he had some turquoise left over from the Camaro in the background for the flames [:o)]). I'm glad that he left the "signiture" bullet nose and other front end parts chromed.

That Bullet nose was on the front cover of HOT ROD magazine July 1990 and a center fold picture as well.

I remember one like this in a hotrod magazine a few years ago . I'm pretty sure this one is kind of a copy of that one ...the flames are different but the color scheme is the same , green on pink. I agree with you about these looking better rodded then stock ! [8]

The 50 Srarlight Coupe just has the right stance to be a street rod. This street rod was left with a lot of it's original Studebaker personality. I like it :)

I agree - if you're gonna rod or modify a Stude, at least do the marque some justice and leave it's personality intact so that others can recognize it for what it truely is. Great looking car, my friend is crazy for modified 50-51s.

Three of those rods pictured appear to be 1951s. Two have 1950 bullets and the third has the outer ring chromed.

IIRC, the original 1950 concept was not to have a conventional bumper, but that was not allowed by management. The vertical splash aprons were a late addition after testing.

M-4077 & Swifster -I've always admired that car. Seen it for sale here and there over the years. The chop is perfect on it -very mild. If I remember correctly, the infamous Dick Dean of California was responsible for the bodywork. My only complaint is that ugly blower and hole in the hood. Otherwise a stunning car with perfect lines in my opinion. :)

That is a 'Studemino' kit car (or kit) you can buy for $4995.00.
http://www.studemino.com/
Made in Orlando, Florida. There always seem to be a few for sale down thataway... Nice quality panels. The rears have a framework that bolts on and the panels snap to the framework. The only issue I have is with the cowl to hood area. Setting in the car you feel like you are 5 years old looking up and over the rear hood edge. Since it is based on an El Camino chassis, I like Calvin Lowell's idea of using a Chevelle wagon for a base unit. Might make for a neat wagon[:p]

Interesting observation. Probably it is just because there are many more Champions than Commanders, both in cars and front body parts. I think, also, the large headlight rims on the Commander wouldn't lend themselves to the "bumperless look".

Has anyone ever seen a 50 Commander street rod?

1959 DeLuxe pickup (restomod)

Referring to the blue 53:
It appears to me to have what Custom Rodder magazine termed a "gentleman's chop." In the original design, when you look at the side profile the roof angle/window opening is a little higher towards the front. This was to allow the wearing of a hat while driving , which in this era all gentlemen did. The chop only involves chopping the front (windshield) about an inch, inch-and-a-half, maybe two. A small cut is made in the C-pillar to allow the roof to come down in front. The backglass is left alone. Stainless trim around windshield on A-pillar is easily shortened and there you have it. The result is a side profile that is definitely sleeker. This is the ONLY Modification to Bourke's design that I think improves on the original. In fact, after you stare at one of these Gentleman's chops for awhile, the original starts to look a little ungainly... YEAH, go ahead, shoot me![}:)]

Perhaps I am incorrect, but in the small picture that I see on my monitor, the top doesn't appear to be chopped at all.

Referring to the blue 53:
It appears to me to have what Custom Rodder magazine termed a "gentleman's chop." In the original design, when you look at the side profile the roof angle/window opening is a little higher towards the front. This was to allow the wearing of a hat while driving , which in this era all gentlemen did. The chop only involves chopping the front (windshield) about an inch, inch-and-a-half, maybe two. A small cut is made in the C-pillar to allow the roof to come down in front. The backglass is left alone. Stainless trim around windshield on A-pillar is easily shortened and there you have it. The result is a side profile that is definitely sleeker. This is the ONLY Modification to Bourke's design that I think improves on the original.

In that batch of bulletnose pix posted above, there is a pink/orange '50 next to a golfcart. That belongs to a Midway member by the name of Bill Jones. He calls it "The Peach". Won a bunch of trophies!

" Has anyone ever seen a 50 Commander street rod?"

I started in Studedom in '56 with a 50 Land Cruiser. That long front end has always entranced me. It seems to me that is the way the line was designed and the production staff shortened it for the Champions.

My dream car would be a 50 commander Business Coupe with a 259 and 3sp OD transmission. Of course, without front bumper.

My 1950 Starlight talks to me now and then. She said the weird, gussied up cars missing
front bumpers worried her and wanted assuarances I wouldn't hurt her that way.
I promised not to mess with her cause she is like the Studebaker people
built her and that is good enough for both of us. She explained that as time goes by,
and fewer and fewer of her breed exist, the future people might think she looked like
the "uglies" (her words not mine) if they alone survive.
